On the contrary, until we have the capabilities of abstracting
users out completetly (so that an ordinary 'ls' sees the correct
user names/uid_t's  that Samba is using) it is *imperative* that
it be tied to the unix password database.

Otherwise, who owns that file Samba just created ?

An unknown uid ? I think not !


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
